hey guys, so i'm new to the pc building world, but i'm very interested in it. i've been researching on the web, watching videos, and even asking around the forum. i play a lot of minecraft, BF3, and hopefully some other games to come. if you guys could look at my build, rate it, and possibly edit it and cut down on costs, that would be great.

Never get a cooler master PSU. Get something from Antec, XFX, seasonic, Corsair.

Get a video card from this generation. probably a gtx 650ti is the best you will do at $139. Maybe a 7850 after a rebate.

The 650 ti is better than a 6850, if you can afford to pay even more get a 7850 1GB.
